Years back, Markham had a police chief named Vern. What was his last name and the years he held the job? His last name I believe started with a S.

Very good. Knowledge of this area from the 40's to 70' s is disappearing fast. Best of luck to you.

Hey local, how long have you lived in the area? I remember when Markham didn't even have a fire department. Midlothian covered for Markhasm...I remember your first Chief of Police. Ray Eastwood. Actually he was the whole department.
I learned to fly at Rubenkam Airport on 167th street.I paid the big amount $3.75 an hour for plane and instructor. Those were the days. Todays kids have no idea what they missed. Have a good Thanksgiving

I have heard of Eastwood before. He was before my time. I used to play at the baseball fields just after the airport closed. Kedzie as only one lane in both directions with a huge ditch on the east side. Been around here since the early 60s. Markham used to have a historian, Mrs.Counts, now passed. Her history went to Tinley Park library. There is supposed to be a written history out there by Jack Payan. He used to have a insurance office in Markham.
